If we are meant to be the civilised beings, why do we smile away from our problems?
Why do we kill our own, disregard the poor and kill the planet as we speak?
Are we protecting our untainted young from the enticing light
That deceives us as corrupted purity?
Are we setting a pathway for younglings to prosper bliss
When all our goals are oriented around money, sex and power?
Why do we blame murderers and rapists
When we should look at ourselves for despoiling the innocence from children these outlaws once were, how can we smile?
